I highly recommend the sequel, "JV Superstar", which is even more hilarious. I grew up in a Baptist Church (North American Baptist/NAB; we did not associate with Southern Baptists!) that was half-filled with moderates, and the other half your typical homeschooling, NRA life member, Clinton-loathing, Prairie dress-wearing (girls), uncut hair (girls), Dad jeans pulled up and belted over the belly button (boys), sheltered-view-of-the-world, large family.
Though I went to public school (much to my dismay), I had many homeschooler friends and participated in Bible Quiz (our teams were separated by gender though).
What the author remarked on in this book is so true, and that's what makes it hilarious. He is highly talented, and I sure hope he publishes some more books!
I got a little grumpy about it, actually, and ended up having to face some personal bias against religious conservatism that I would have preferred to ignore in myself. Personal issues aside, though, it was a really interesting and entertaining look a childhood much, much different from my own.
One critical review against this book concerns the author's fascination with his own sexual awakening. I respectfully argue that the review misses the point; this book is about the context in which that awakening takes place. A second complaint is that there is little to no introspection, but I believe this is a strength. Pierce does not deride, blame or accuse, neither does he praise, defend or support. He simply relates the facts, with humor, and lets you draw your own conclusions.
I wish it were longer, perhaps a little more detailed, but on the flip side there is no fluff in this book. Every page is either funny, poignant, or both. The author's blog and Twitter is also excellent.
I wish I could write like he does!
